PDF | On Jan 1, , Mark Widdowson and others published Transactional Analysis: Key Points and Techniques. When it came to choosing a book for my project, I was literally dumb. Each book I went through was too good to be left. So, what led me to. Transactional analysis (TA) is both a theory of personality and an organized system of Transactional analysis was originally developed by the late Eric Berne.
Other instruments used were ego state questionnaires, empathy, and five point Likert scales. No study design or type of literature was excluded in healthcare to substantiate the application of EI and TA into the nursing curriculum. Results: Sixteen nurses attended a six-week psycho-education program using communication and empathy scales, and patient satisfaction surveys to improve their empathetic and communication skills.
The result of the mean communication score The empathy score increased from Conclusion: The data suggests there are under-researched theories with futuristic topics that have value to the nursing community. Suitable evaluation of these theories is vital to nursing education. Implementation and training for nursing students and existing nurses may help shift the culture of medical education ahead by creating a more educated and empathetic work environment.
Keywords: Emotional intelligence, Transactional analysis, Patient, Communication, Nursing, Students, Curriculum Introduction Patient care has become increasingly multifaceted. Lack of broad theoretical education and communication skills is the main factor.
Consequently, nursing facilitators face significant pressure to teach students who, upon commencement, are ready to meet the extensive challenges they will encounter in the field.
Mastering the technicalities of communication and the ability to express empathy are two of the momentous oppositions students will face.
Emotions are vital to the nursing practice and emotional intelligence EI is considered an essential characteristic that nurses must have. Lack of this trait can affect the quality of work, clinical decision-making, critical thinking, and the outcome of patient care 2.
Upon assessing the apparent problems of under prepared nursing students, the obvious disconnection lies in the nursing curriculum. The format seems to lack in-depth concentration on areas such as emotional intelligence and techniques to deal with communication roadblocks. EI is on the forefront of health care and is considered a functional universal method. Exploring concepts of EI and transactional analysis in combination with other theoretical framework may bridge the empathetic and communication learning gaps for nursing students.
The purpose is to establish the value of EI and TA in the nursing community. The objective is to determine the effect of how early training of those techniques and theories can have a positive impact on how nurses communicate with patients and in turn increase patient satisfaction.
Defining emotional intelligence Emotional intelligence is defined in various ways. Salovey and Mayer described EI as the subset of social intelligence. These components are considered the four building blocks for interpersonal and communication skills, which are critical in the nursing field. To identify and manage such actions is an undeniable skill-set.
Emotional intelligence: An invaluable skill set EI is an indispensable skill-set. Practicing nurses have been found to be unprepared to handle emotionally laden situations and complex communication challenges encountered during practice 1. The International Journal of Nursing Practice shows data of patients reporting decreased satisfaction with nursing care in hospitals 4. Hospitals must find a way to recover patient dissatisfaction by rebuilding the nurse-patient emotional connection. Emotionally aware nurses are more apt to separate their emotions from distressed patients.
Unless nurses are able to offer an emotionally intelligent response, the idealized state of a pleased patient may not be achievable. It is important to understand how people perceive verbal communication during a conversation. The three forms of communication are divided into percentages to gain a clear understanding of which category has more prominence when speaking.
The interpretive theory supports the significance of understanding nonverbal cues and the correlation between emotions and nonverbal communication. Fogel is a professor in psychology and has been an active contributor to emotional intelligence research.
Understanding nonverbal communication can be conceived as a practical skill in the nursing field considering many patients only have this option to verbalize his or her needs. EI, the co-regulation, and interpretive theory have a correlation with understanding how people communicate, which can be understood by studying transactional analysis.
Definition of transactional analysis Berne defines transactional analysis TA at its simplest level as a method for studying interactions between people. This psychotherapy was developed to help understand the process of communication and what ego state of mind a person may be conversing in while dealing with others.
Ego states are examined with two separate models, structural and functional. The structural analysis is divided into three states: parent, adult, and child, which demonstrates how individuals relate to each other 6.
The functional parent state is separated into the critical and nurturing parent. Critical ego is based on thoughts and feelings copied from parents or parent figures and the nurturing ego tends to be more protective. The adult ego state relates to thoughts and feelings in the here and now. Berne describes the child as having three different ego states with various functions, i. The child ego state triggers when a person feels his or her needs are going unmet and a defense mechanism takes over.
When communicating these ego states exists, a person can transfer from one state to another without notice. Nurses must understand how to detect this transference and become properly trained to manage the patient's conversations in a time of illness.
TA plays an important role in nursing that has gone unnoticed. TA has been successfully used in different professions to develop communication skills such as pharmaceutical lecture series. With a lack of understanding, the various levels of communication and the ability to adjust to fit the mind-set of the patient signals can become crossed and miscommunication can occur.
The goal of transactional analysis The goal of TA is to have all parties involved converse in the idealized state, which is adult to adult and it remains a challenge. The feeling of annoyance can create crossed signals, ambiguity, and sarcasm can take over; the patient's needs may go unfulfilled. If the nurse does not have the tools to manage emotions and adjust to fit the mindset of the patient, the idealized state is lost. This model will address the how, what, and why the deviation from the idealized state exists from self or the patient.
This research has been an attempt to assess the effect of transactional analysis combined with emotional intelligence as a tool used in the nursing curriculum to educate nursing students early on. The expectation is to advance empathy and communication skills for student and veteran nurses, which in turn can create progress with patient outcomes and personal satisfaction. Methods The method used in this review is a literature research involving subjective data on emotional intelligence and transactional analysis.
The collection of samples from the literature involves qualitative and quantitative methods. Qualitative tools such as semi-structured and cognitive interviews, lecture series, and unstructured observation practice were used to corroborate the data.
Literature research involving quantitative methods were used such as convenience sampling, Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test MSCEIT and test, student and faculty information forms, and ego states questionnaires to authenticate the outcome of the statistical results. The sampling of literature is in hopes to motivate additional exploratory research to determine if incorporating EI and TA into the current curriculum can increase the knowledge base of student nurses.
The idea is the addendum could develop a heightened level of empathy and communication skills to benefit nursing students, improve patient outcomes, and increase satisfaction. Various search terms were used to the compile the data such as, emotional intelligence, emotional intelligence in nursing, transactional analysis, emotions, patient communication, nursing curriculum, empathy, co-regulation, nonverbal communication, and patient satisfaction.
The literature will address where research has been and where expansion is needed for progression in the nursing field. Results Lack of communication creates errors and redundancy Communication is an obvious foundation to superior nursing care; the U. Although the benchmark average is a fair start, there is still a need for first-rate communication results in this area Since the report, the Joint Commission Sentinel Event Advisory Group has implemented the National Patient Safety Goals, with revision in , that focuses on improved communication effectiveness among nurse caregivers.
The cause of this implementation is more than reported serious and preventable events that cite ineffective communication as a frequent contributor to medical errors.
The goals that are expected to be executed by nursing caregivers are timely, accurate, and completely unambiguous communication that is comprehensively understood by the recipient. The expectation is that the improvements will reduce communication and medical errors and result in improved patient safety. Effective communication and handoff responsibility is an essential component of nursing practice and clinical education.
It is critical to cultivate a culture of safety in nursing students with effective routines that will continue throughout their careers. The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare has taken some steps to reduce the error rate by developing the targeting solutions tool TST and executing the hand- off communication program.
This result is a clear indication that communication is a fixable and attainable goal. The outcome is an indication that health care education for nurses should focus on in-depth communication and empathy classes from the beginning.
Leaders in health care, such as nurses, must understand the consequences of communication behavior.
Communication involves more than spoken words; the empathetic demeanor, finesse and delivery of those words have a direct effect on patient care. Tackling these issues from the start by using TA techniques and EI theoretical framework can reduce the redundancy for nursing students entering the health care field.
The data was gathered through cognitive interviews combined with convenience sampling of five nurses utilizing the crick and dodge model of social processing. The social information model describes the sequential steps in the cognitive process used to respond to social cues that may be useful in explaining the nursing process.
The outcome of the investigation is that nursing communication affects patient outcomes such as anxiety, adherence to treatments, and satisfaction with care. The conclusion is models of social information processing enhance the understanding of the process of how nurses respond to patients and construct further development for nursing theories This study illustrates the importance of nonverbal communication in nursing. It also supports the notation that the combined theories of co-regulation, TA, and EI may be a useful addendum to the nursing curriculum.
A week course using the TA method was developed to help pharmaceutical students communicate more effectively with patients. During the lecture, students were asked to take a personality assessment, apply the learned techniques, and report their experiences. The course was devoted to developing a knowledge base in effective communication that included practicing patient communication through case scenarios.
A case scenario is a similar method that is used in nursing education.

The focal point was to use the lecture series as part of the educational process of patient communication. Students are presented with the concept of TA and two methods of personality assessments.
The objective of the segment and the patient counseling communications course is to help students understand psychological factors that may affect patient communication TA method works The result of the lecture series is students could demonstrate and apply the techniques with an understanding of the psychological factors that may influence patient communication.
Students also gained a greater awareness of transactional analysis and personality assessment by applying these concepts The similarities between nurses and pharmacists are quite astonishing concerning communication with patients in the hospital.
It is evident from this lecture series that the ability to understand and use TA will help pharmaceutical and nursing students effectively communicate with patients in diverse settings. Managing diversity with TA Managing diversity is a factor in the lecture series that has a correlation with TA and directly affects patient communication. The health care community is extremely multi-cultural. Patients have different personality types and understanding how to appreciate diversity and manage communication can be honed using TA techniques.
TA trending in health care studies The use of TA has taken a positive trend in a variety of areas in health care. The method was used in a lecture series as the research design to train pharmacists how to identify ego states and make adjustments to communicate effectively with patients. This method is also being used in clinical settings. The study involved real hospitalized patients and non-medical students were selected to participate as standardized patients.
Before each hospitalization, there was a session with related specialists in the wards to help standardized patients play their role successfully without causing any disbelief The instrument used in the study was a 5-point Likert scale consisting of 18 questions regarding how nurses communicate.
The value of the scale was 1 strongly disagree and 5 strongly agree. The mean scores for all nurses were calculated 69 and 25 nurses were divided into two groups; 1-nurses with scores higher than mean and 2-nurses with scores lower than mean. The nurses were randomly divided into two subgroups; 13 in the case and 12 in control groups.
Participants in the case group received a brief training about TA. In spite of a brief educational intervention program, the outcome of the study was positive in the short term with immense long-term potential. The positive effect of the study began to diminish over the course of one to three months, which gives an indication that repeated intervals of the TA program may bring long-term success.
Overall, the study demonstrated the validity of TA as a universal communication method that is useful in the nursing field and enhances patient satisfaction Can empathy be taught? This test, known as the MSCEIT, is based on the ability model of EI and consists of perceiving and identifying emotions, assimilating and using emotions, understanding emotions and managing emotions He posits that individuals are born with a general emotional intelligence that determines their potential for learning emotional competencies Emotional competencies are not innate talents, but rather learned capabilities that must be worked on and developed to achieve outstanding performance.
In the Harvard business review article, Goleman believes in both; an individual can be born with EI and learn to develop the trait over time.
Research and practice clearly demonstrates that EI can be learned; like maturity, EI increases with age. Canadian-born US psychiatrist Eric Berne developed the concept and.
